Either things are getting back to normal or I am completely losing it. Are spoons really that important?? It’s the little things –
I have a house with three boys in a neighborhood filled with boys. I have a sandbox in my backyard. I guess it’s obvious – the spoons we eat with must fulfill a greater destiny. These are ordinary spoons for the table – that we eat with (have I said that already?). But in the eyes of the boys, they are no ordinary spoons after all. They are the tools to use to dig a hole big enough to bury a basketball, tablespoonful by tablespoonful.
Well, the boys have gone through at least 10 of our spoons. I have bought replacements; they too disappear. They are now using toddler spoons to eat their cereal with – 4 Trix per bite. Doesn’t seem to phase them at all.
I think the part that drives me the craziest is that no one will fess up – all three are stonewalling me to the bitter end. Nobody did it. Nobody knows where they are or where we could begin looking. Really?? We are missing a dozen spoons and they have NO IDEAS where they might be????
So, why am I the only one bothered by this? Am I getting back to normal, where little things like this become big deals? Or am I still so off that I’m letting a little thing like this drive me crazy?
Well, I really have no desire to go buy another set of spoons that will promptly disappear again. So if anyone has any extra mismatched spoons that they would like to get rid of, I’d be glad to take them off your hands – I’ll help you de-clutter your kitchen drawer and you’ll help us be able to eat cereal again.
